WHAT TO DO WITH THE INFORMATION YOU GATHER That’s easy. Collate feedback and establish trends in requests you receive. You might find, for example, that a batch of readers would like to see more "How-To’s" on your subject. Maybe others crave for readers letters and answers, whilst other readers might want to see more longer (or shorter) articles. You get drift though. Find out what it is they’d like to see.
Give it to them. And give it to them in spades...
Start thinking about your readers’ feedback as if that’s their way of going out to vote! They’ve indicated a preference, a particular like or dislike about your newsletter. Now, just like any politician, your job is to reflect that right back to them and give them information they crave.
SHAPE YOUR NEWSLETTER AROUND THE FEEDBACK Very few editors take time to really understand what their readership would like to see covered. Fewer still actually do anything constructive with results.
But if you take time to do both of these things, you are guaranteed to experience a couple of *great* results:
(1). Your existing subscribers will become increasingly loyal, as they derive pleasure from fact that your newsletter covers what they really want to know about.
(2). New subscribers will flock to your publication. Why? Well just think of your possible subscriber base as being like a huge lake of fish. They’re all swimming around looking for information (and newsletters) that perfectly cover their interests and presents information in a format that they would like to receive.
Your newsletter is bait. If you shape it perfectly around desires and needs of your existing readership, chances are your publication will also fit your potential subscribers. Follow above advice and you will have adjusted your bait to perfectly attract an ever-growing newsletter subscriber base.
Good luck, Michael Green
